Our new lifestyle in the tropics
The light was just beginning to fade then, so time for a beer for me now I told Myra about the restaurant and I knew that she would be hungry because I was now too. A little while later the sun started dropping to the horizon so I finished my beer, packed our couple of bags and dropped off any rubbish that we had in a bin near the road. We then walked slowly down to the restaurant and it was very pleasant in there, there was a roof but the sides were open and you could see the sea. When the waiter arrived, I had already decided what food we would try that night, so I ordered the seafood steamboat for us. When it arrived, the first thing placed on the table was an aluminium vessel with hot charcoal in the centre and a channel around the perimeter that contained water or stock, the seafood was presented on separate plates with spices, vegetables, sauces and some boiled rice. What you do with steamboat, is you place exactly what you want to eat and mix in the aluminium channel to boil in the liquid there, so basically you cook yourself at the table and you decide what you want to cook and eat. Being an amateur chef myself, I just took care of it for both of us, I ordered some beers for the chef (ME) and we just relaxed and ate at our leisure. The food was excellent, the taste of the mixed fresh seafood cooked and mixed with spices, sauces and vegetables was wonderful.
Because we could cook the steamboat at our leisure, we just took our time and spent most of the evening there. A little while later though, Myra complained that she had a headache and was feeling hot and a little nauseous. So I paid the bill quickly and we went outside to get a taxi back to the hotel. We got a taxi quite quickly and we were back at the hotel just twenty minutes later, Myra was still feeling unwell and she looked a little pale, so I put her to bed, found a couple of aspirin in my bags and gave them to her. I asked her if she thought that she needed to see a doctor, but she said that she probably just needed some sleep, turned over in the bed and slept quite quickly. I was still wide awake then, so I just went downstairs to the outside dining area, got a beer and started thinking about what to do and where we could go the next day. Apart from Myra feeling a little unwell at the end, we both had a very good day at Changi beach and the sunset we saw whilst sitting in the restaurant there was marvellous. But I couldn't really make any plans for the next day whilst I was worried about Myra, so I just quickly finished my beer went back to the room and joined her in bed.
'Our new lifestyle in the tropics'
I shall be adding to this site over time, so if anyone is interested then please have a little patience and call back here from time to time. One of my very few pleasures in life these days is beer so I shall be occasionally referring to beer, I just wish that beer was the only reason that I am legless all the time
Thanks for viewing my site, cheers for now, Legless
